CONCLUDING NOTICES. END OF THE REIGN

(2Ch 20:31 -2Ch_21:1).

Comp. 1Kings 22:41-50. A brief section, which constitutes the whole account of the reign of Jehoshaphat in the older narrative.

(31) And Jehoshaphat reigned over Judah.--Kings adds: "In the fourth year of Ahab king of Israel." With this omission, our verse coincides with 1Kings 22:41-42.

Verse 31. - With this verse recommences the parallel of 1 Kings 22:41-50. In this verse we find the addition in the parallel very naturally to be accounted for, of "began to reign in the fourth year of Ahab King of Israel." Otherwise the verses are almost identical. Of Azubah nothing more is heard.
